Introduction: Mini Cardboard Shipping Box
Follow these steps to make an adorable little box.
- Piece of Cardboard (I used 5.5" x 2.5")
Step 1: Cut Base and Sides of Box
You will cut 5 pieces of cardboard. The base will be a 1.25" square. The sides will be 1.5" x 1.25".
To create the box tabs, fold your sides about 1/3 of the way down. You can see the folds in the image above.
Step 2: Glue & Tape
Apply glue to the bottom of one of the sides and stick it to the base. Do this 4 times to create your box. For me the glue wasn't strong enough so I had to reinforce the inside & outside with tape.
Your box should look like the photo above when you have 3 out of 4 sides taped.
Tip: Press the tape with your fingernail so that you don't see it as much.
Step 3: Admire Your New Mini Box!
